. "the new york times" reported republicans might accept higher tax rates on wealthier americans to avoid triggering tax hikes for everyone. in return, they'd demand greater spending cuts next year before raising the federal borrowing limit. >> if congress in any way suggests that they're going to tie negotiations to debt ceiling votes and take us to the brink of default once again as part of a budget negotiation, which, by the way, we have never done in our history until we did it last year, i will not play that game because we've got to... we've got to break that habit before it starts. >> reporter: the 2011 standoff between the president and republicans led the nation to the brink of national default. standard and poor's even lowered its rating on u.s. government bonds. now, the president has proposed he be given authority to raise the debt ceiling without congressional action. house republicans reject that idea. and they've called for raising revenue without rate hikes, plus major savings in entitlement programs. the president argued today a partial deal is possible on taxes, if the g
. and i want to read you something that paul krugman wrote in the new york times earlier this week. he said, long-term unemployment remains at levels not seen since the great depression. as of october, 4.9 million americans had been unemployed for more than six months. 3.6 million had been out of work for more than a year. fiscal cliff negotiations, they're really focused on fixing the debt. how can you fix the debt if you can't fix the economy? if you can't fix the jobs situation? >> oh, boy, this is the magic question this is why people like paulfreaking out and going, wait a minute, we go over the fiscal cliff, it is austerity, it is bad for job creation and that could be a problem. the bigger issue i think in the long-term unemployment problem is we never really dealt with it from the beginning of the jobs crisis. so 12 million people out of work, 40% of them, more than six months, that's insane. but we have not had a real program to get those long-term unemployed back to work. and, you know, frankly, i don't see anything happening in the future. as we look at that fiscal cliff, wh
eliot engel of new york, who will become that committee's ranking member in the next term. congressman royce, let me start with you. what's the key thing we learned from this report? where do you see the main failure? >> well, i think the main failure when you read the report is in management at senior levels because when you had on the ground was not only an ambassador but other personnel warning that al qaeda camps were growing, explaining that they felt that they were at risk personally, asking for support-- which was not forth come ago and coming to the conclusion that washington was not concerned about their security needs. so all of that comes out in the memos. and i think what has to be addressed is why not only was the preparation not there, but somebody forgot to circle the calendar on 9/11. there was no attempt or no effective way, i guess, desploid should this happen that we could come in with a quick-reaction team and assist them if they come under attack. eight-hour firefight, no assistance through that period. >> eliot engel, do you read it any differently? "systemic fail
: rising sea levels. today, new york city mayor michael bloomberg announced a new long-term initiative to protect the city from future natural disasters. he called for rebuilding vulnerable coastal areas, but dismissed again the idea of constructing a large sea-gate across the harbor. >> we're not going to abandon the waterfront. we're not going to abandon the rockaways or coney island or staten island's south shore. but we can't just rebuild what was there and hope for the best. we have to build smarter and stronger and more sustainably. >> woodruff: 350 miles south. the city of norfolk, virginia, is another coastal city vulnerable to sea level rise and extreme storms. but its mayor has said parts of his city might not be livable in the future. our producer, mike melia, traveled to norfolk recently to look at how it has been struggling with flooding and preparing for the next big storm. he worked with member station whro to bring us this report. it's part of our series-- working with public media partners across the country-- that we call "battleground dispatches." >> reporter: when r

. in today's office politics, alex continues her conversation with new york times columnist, nicholas kristof who share what is haunts him most of his coverage of the cambodian sex slave trade. they begin by talking the israeli/palestinian conflict. >> i have conflicting feelings because it seems to me that, you know, israel has, in recent years been undermining the prospects of precisely the two-state vision and has been adopting policies that are quasi suicidal. you have israeli policies and these extraordinary human rights groups, historians that just totally warm my soul. this group you mentioned, abbuys for human rights are going out every day siding with palestinians who are getting their olive trees chopped down, risking their own safety at times to do that. it's a courage but anymore than that, a moral courage that i think, represents the best, not only of israel but of human beings. we haven't had this problem over the years of palestinian hard liners and reinforcing israeli hard liners who then bolster the hard liners. the reason that the israeli doves are gone from the scene is ham
